Christmas releases!

It's Xmas time and here we are with many great releases!

Few hours ago, JBoss Application Server 7.1.0 CR1 has been released: it comes with over 370 jira resolved, numerous management and clustering improvements and the EE6 Full Profile support is feature complete.

Speaking of web services, one of the AS 7.1.0.CR1 updated components is JBossWS 4.0.0.GA, which has been released yesterday and is available for download starting from today.
The first final version of the JBossWS 4 series solves few minor issues over the previously announced and described CR1 version. Have a look at the release notes and documentation for further details!

Finally, I've also released the 1.1.0.GA version of the JBoss JAX-WS Maven Plugin, which basically introduces support for the new JBossWS 4 stacks and fixes an important bug for those leveraging the Maven War Plugin too in their maven project. The artifacts are available as usual on the maven repository.

Definitely a lot of stuff to play with during the Christmas vacations ;-) Enjoy!

I'd like to congratulate again the working group on this major achievement and thank Red Hat (as one of the members participating the group) for having allowed me to take part in the group and join the discussions that led to the standards definition.
